Ridgmount Gardens Consultation

Closed 22 Mar 2022

Opened 17 Feb 2022


The Covid-19 pandemic has changed how people in Camden live, travel and work. We want our streets to have more safe space for everyone to walk and cycle, for children to get to and from school safely and healthily, for businesses to be able to flourish, to reduce carbon emissions from vehicles and for you to be breathing cleaner air.

We want to ensure that our streets support a strong recovery from the pandemic and provide a lasting legacy of greener, safer, healthier travel.

As 69% of households in Camden do not own a car and public transport use remains much lower than before the pandemic, we know that safe and easy walking, cycling and scooting routes are more important than ever. Supporting and encouraging those who are able to walk and cycle, by creating safer streets will ensure that there is more space available on public transport and on our roads for those who need it the most.

This consultation concerns the Council’s proposal to introduce two way cycling on Ridgmount Gardens. In line with the Camden Transport Strategy, it is policy to make streets two-way for cycling wherever possible. We want to know what you think of this proposal.

Why your views matter

This proposal is part of the West End Project which was approved by full Cabinet in January 2015. Further information on this can be viewed on these websites:


As part of this scheme, a number of streets were selected to enhance cycle access throughout the project area and Ridgmount Gardens is one of those identified. Surveys have been undertaken to confirm the street’s suitability in terms of traffic flows and speeds. If approved, the proposal is subject to a road safety audit before and after implementation.

In line with new Department for Transport guidance, we are now consulting on all new and amended Safe and Healthy Street schemes so that we can engage our local residents, businesses and stakeholders in changes happening on their streets. We want to know what you think about these additional proposals.  

What happens next

After the consultation, a decision report will be produced and published online via our website. Local residents and stakeholders will be notified of the outcome. The report will consider a broad range of information including officer observations, consultation responses, feedback received during the trial period, relevant policies, and other data/information.
